Stumbled on this place while driving around Anaheim today. I did a quick search and didn't see any mentions here yet, so I thought I'd write up a quick post.
The place is called Ochoa's Chorizo #2, at 2827 E Lincoln Ave in Anaheim.
All they sell is chorizo. That's it. No BS or trying to be everything for everyone. Just a specialty chorizo place. And it's awesome. They sell five different kinds of chorizo: green pork chorizo - chorizo verde, a medium chicken chorizo and three pork chorizos: mild, medium and hot.
All the chorizo is sold in good quality casings and is sold by the yard. The price is ~$3.75 for 1/2 yard. They do sell the mild and medium pork chorizo without the casings by the pound.
I tried out the green chorizo this evening and it was fantastic. Spicy, flavorful, unique... real. Love it. Can't wait to try out the chicken and pork chorizos tomorrow.
They also have a store in Santa Ana too - at 220 W Warner (looks on google maps like it's directly adjacent to that good DF-style antojitos place... which makes me question why I've never tried the chorizo place before). I assume the Santa Ana store is the original considering the numbering of the two locations.
Anyhow, if you haven't already, definitely hit one of these two up for the best chorizo I've found in Orange County.
